Hospitals typically have lean IT staffs tasked with supporting hundreds of employees across multiple departments using dozens of different applications from many different software vendors. Each of these applications routinely requires remote access for maintenance, patches, troubleshooting and software upgrades. In addition to supporting the ongoing operation of the hospital, IT staffs must manage these activities without compromising hospital IT security.
Application interconnectivity and reliability are essential for keeping patient data flowing between departments to ensure quality healthcare. Application failure, data corruption or even slow performance are potentially life threatening and unacceptable. A single application outage can affect multiple hospital departments.
Hospitals are challenged with opposing priorities – application uptime is critical, but the methods to attain it are at odds with security and privacy regulations. HIPAA requirements pressure hospital IT staffs to implement well-defined security policies and systems. Civil penalties for non-compliance in the tens of thousands of dollars (plus the threat of potential criminal penalties), require keeping patient data secure… and hospital IT systems need to pass rigorous audits in order to prove HIPAA compliance.
